My Ultimate Comfort Food
I love to warm up with piping hot butternut squash soup. The sweet taste, and velvety texture just warms me through and through!
Here's some general guidelines:
For the base: use a generous amount of sauteed onions and garlic.
For the veggies: 1/3 of the veggies should be butternut squash. The rest should be a combination of orange, green, and white veggies. For orange, use carrots. For green, always use zucchini, and you have an option of adding celery, acorn, or kombucha squash. For white, I like to use one of the following root vegetables: parsley root, celery root, or rutabaga.
Fill your pot with large vegetable chunks. Add water to cover veggies, plus another two inches above veggies. Add salt and pepper, and cook until the veggies are soft. Blend with an immersion blender. Optional: Add a package of frozen peas, and boil for another 20 minutes.
I always make a huge pot at a time, and freeze it in individual containers for later use.
